Pros: PostgreSQL is a robust yet very easy to use DBMS. You can trust PostgreSQL to save your data no matter how big it its. It is very well documented and the community that develops it is the best (thanks guys!). In the newer versions it nows supports saving JSON data so you can use it as a NoSQL solution. PostgreSQL is simply the best.

Overall: Having a robust DBMS for our database is great.

Postgres is the best! You won't be dissapointed

Pros: I really like Postgres, because of its commonalities with MySQL, but yet it is different enough to be even better. It scales better, and is ready to go for industrial solutions.

Cons: This is a hard one, there isn't much I don't like about Postgres. If it was easier for beginners to learn that would be ideal, but that isn't the easiest thing either.

Overall: I really like the way that it stores my data. It is easy to access, and easy to understand if you know databases.

Pros: There is a huge community of power users online and I feel like I can always get my questions answered with a quick google search.

Cons: There's not really anything that I dont like...maybe if Postgres hosted their own knowledgbase that contained their SQL operators.

Overall: The online community of postgres users is fantastic. I love being able to dive into answers from users who have used the tool more often than I.

PostgreSQL is reliable, feature-rich, and allows us to process thousands of transactions per second

Pros: PostgreSQL is durable and fault-tolerant by design; great effort is taken by the developers to ensure reliability is maintained.

This cautious approach does not hinder development though; constant enhancements are delivered in every release, with new features generally arriving ahead of much more expensive commercial products.

With both community and commercial support, bug fixes and security issues (although rare) are always addressed quickly, and generally resolved far quicker than most commercial vendors.

With a wide selection of both free and commercial tools to accompany it, we are easily as productive if not more than we would be with a commercial offering.

Overall PostgreSQL has excellent speed, reliability and support of SQL standards; coupled with its "free forever" licensing, there is no risk of costly vendor lock-in.

Cons: There's very little to dislike about PostgreSQL, and the "free forever" BSD style licensing means you've nothing to lose in trying it for prototyping you next project. I've no idea why anyone would use anything else.

Pros: Pretty much everything, although there are a few features from commercial databases that I'm hoping will make it in. After having used it for several years, and a certain "M" competitor for several years prior, I can confidently say that it's really hard to go wrong in recommending PostgreSQL to anyone with even a small amount of technical knowledge.

Cons: - Setting up replication can be a bit tricky
- There isn't really a good repository for an up-to-date (or per-version) list of common tips, tricks and queries. Often can be some googling to track down what you're looking for

Cons: I think it's not easy to understand how to do database backups and for that reason i don't like do it

Pros: It has a lot of features and functionalities. It is open source. It has a balanced and clear GUI through pgAdmin

Cons: It is not the database that many language use by default like MySQL, you have to make a couple of additional steps to set the configuration but it worth it.

Overall: Its technical characteristics make it one of the most powerful and robust databases in the market.

Pros: Easy to install, high performance, hold many kinds of data fields, highly reliable

Cons: The CLI is not the best option when your tables have several columns

Overall: Postgres is by far the strongest database relational engine, it's a one package solution, it will hold tons of transactions with no problems, it is highly reliable and high performance based.

We use Postgres to hold the data for both our web app and Mobile apps, we use a web service layer that interacts directly with the data base and it works like a charm.

It will also allow you to store things like JSON objects (JA! Take that MongoDB!) and use those objects and even create search queries based on that data.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you come from MySql world this is by far the best open source db option that you might use
